A Peek Inside My Bedroom

So after months of hard work, my house is finally being pulled together. It's not quite totally done yet (my "office" is basically still a dumping ground) but it is just about getting there. You can see a peak inside my living room in my last interior blog post but this time, I thought I'd give you guys a little tour of my bedroom. 

My bedroom is on the front room of my house and although I was sceptical about how it was going to look at first, I absolutely love how it's turned out. My bed sits right at the window so when I wake up on a morning I see the beautiful view of the green fields and little village houses that my bedroom looks out onto and because it's quite a small room with a large window, it's one of the brightest rooms in my house which I love. The flooring is varnished floorboards and because the house is so old, they do have the odd paint splatter or the odd chip but for me, that only adds to the personality of the room and I actually prefer them a little bit worn! Like the rest of my house, I got the walls painted white so that there was a neutral palette incase I ever wanted to change the colour scheme, which at the moment is white, grey and silver.

Most of my actual furniture in my bedroom is from good old IKEA. For me, it's the absolute failsafe for furniture because it's cheap and cheerful but is also very, very nice. Sure, some of it may not be the best quality but I'd rather have a cheapish bed that doesn't cost me three months wages when it does exactly the same job as a three grand one would. I do have a decent mattress from Leesa (you can read my post about that here) and I absolutely love my bedspreads. This striped one is from IKEA in the sale and cost me about £16 but the rest? They're from good ol' Primark and if you're looking for cheap but genuinely nice bedspreads I can't recommend their homeware section enough. I've bought palm tree print, stripes, plain white and embroidered bedspreads from there and every time I go in there's a new one in that I want to buy.

My little accessories are from a whole variety of places but the silver alarm clock is one of the biggest bargains ever. Two pounds from my local charity shop. Yep. Two. Pounds. I saw an almost identical one in Next a while back for around 16 quid so it is a true bargain. Charity shops are often over looked in the homeware stakes but when I've been hunting around in them, they also have some lovely bits of furniture too. Sure, some of them are very old fashioned but charity shops can be an absolute treasure trove!

One of my favourite things about living alone is that I have full creative freedom with my decorating. I wanna have all my make-up brushes on show? Bitch that's what I'm gonna do. I wanna have my teddy Albus from the Build-A-Bear factory on show? He's sitting on top of my wardrobe. My wardrobe is jam-packed full of my own stuff and it's coordinated and organised (as for how long this will last? maybe a week or so given my messy track record) with my make-up brushes in plant pots on my chest of drawers. I got the ideas for this off Pinterest (like most people do when decorating now!) and I love the way it looks. I also have a plant pot in my kitchen with little bits of things in and for a couple of quid from IKEA you can't go wrong!

I love my bedroom because it's bright, simple and minimalistic with little details that bring it all together. The green plant in the corner, the plant photos on the walls, the plant pots and the personal touches like my teddy makes it much more appealling to me than my last bedroom!

What do you think of my bedroom decor? Which room shall I show you next?!
